Tuesday, 04 March 2014

    The Alaska State Troopers have reported extensive vandalism to vehicles parked at the boat ramp in Anton Larsen Bay. In addition to looking for the suspect or suspects, they are also seeking vehicle owners to notify, as they suspect many are unaware their car has been damaged.
    In a release, the Troopers say several thousands of dollars of damage occurred when at least nine vehicles had one or more windows smashed in.
    The crime is thought to have occurred over the weekend.
    The Troopers say anyone with information – be it about the owners of the cars, or the perpetrators of the crime – can call the anonymous Crime Stoppers hotline at 486-3113 or the Trooper office at 486-4121.

    A new project from the Alaska Network on Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault launched in February is aimed at helping parents talk to their teens about healthy relationships. “Talk Now, Talk Often, Alaska” offers parents and caregivers resources to help them broach the touchy subject of relationships, and try to break through the tough shell teens sometimes have around them when it comes to talking to the older crowd.
    Claudia Plesa is a project coordinator witt the Alaska Network.
    “This is a brand new effort. You know, we do a lot of victim services here at the Alaska Network. We work with a lot of organizations to provide those services. Another piece of our work is to prevent violence before it happens. And part of our work is to work with teens to inform other teens. So peer-to-peer kind of education around what is a healthy relationship. What we have found lately is that parents aren’t part of that conversation, and kids are learning what a relationship is, or what a healthy relationship is from the media or from their friends. So we wanted to provide some resources for parents to really have them start being part of that conversation.”
    Trina Bashem of Kodiak is one of the first parents to try out Talk Now Talk Often. She works at the Kodiak Womens Resource and Crisis Center, and felt this program would fit well with her work.

Kodiak Coast Guard Crews Kept Busy Out West PDF Print E-mail

    A mariner possibly suffering from appendicitis was medevac’ed from a vessel near Unalaska on Saturday.
    The Coast Guard sent an MH-65 Dolphin helicopter from the cutter Alex Haley to hoist the 40-year-old man from the 559-foot bulk carrier Ken Ei, a Panama-flagged vessel. It was about 100 miles northwest of Unalaska at the time.
    The man was suffering from abdominal pain, and the Coast Guard duty flight surgeon determined he might have had appendicitis. The crewman was transported first to Dutch Harbor, where a larger MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter took him to Cold Bay to meet a commercial medflight for further treatment in Anchorage.
    There were reportedly 40-mile-an-hour winds and seven-foot seas on scene during the medevac.
    The Coast Guard forward-deploys crews from Air Station Kodiak around the Bering Sea to cut response times during this busy time of year. Saturday’s was their third medevac of past week, and their eighth in the region in the new year.

           Last week KMXT told you about marine debris clean ups happening across Kodiak and how they are being funded.
           Last summer Kodiak Island Trails Network cleaned more than 80,000 tons of debris from islands in the northern part of the archipelago, and is hoping to have similar success on Shuyak Island and the northeast portion of Afognak this year.
            The amount being cleaned is certainly impressive, but handling the debris once it’s removed is another challenge in itself. KMXT’s Brianna Gibbs has the final installment of our series on marine debris, and what happens to the items after they’re cleaned from the beaches.
